Update: College strike developments

- Advertisement -

The College Employer Council says it can’t agree to a union demand to give striking employees a $5,000 signing bonus.   The council says agreeing to that demand would cost $60-million.  Meanwhile the Ontario Public Service Employees Union wants the government to disband the college council.  OPSEU says the council is beyond the reach of freedom-of-information and salary disclosure laws even though taxpayers pay for it.  It adds the council is a shadowy organization that is accountable to no one and only exists to enrich its directors.   The Liberal government is expected to introduce back-to-work legislation today and may sit through the weekend in an effort to pass it.  The Progressive Conservative party supports the proposed legislation but not the NDP.
